Contentment and generosity-weekend words

Philippians chapter 4: 11-19, New Living Translation 

Not that I was ever in need, for I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. 
I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little. 
 
For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength.
 
Even so, you have done well to share with me in my present difficulty.
I don’t say this because I want a gift from you. Rather, I want you to receive a reward for your kindness.
At the moment I have all I need—and more!
I am generously supplied with the gifts you sent me.They are a sweet-smelling sacrifice that is acceptable and pleasing to God. 
And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.

“We’ve all known people who claimed they’d be happy if only they were married, had children, had a big house, or had the right job. But most people who are banking on circumstantial contentment will find themselves in emotional bankruptcy sooner or later.

An unhappy person usually needs a change of heart more than a change of circumstances. “

Weekend Words- let us fast

Isaiah 58:6-10, NIV

“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen:

to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke,to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?

Is it not to share your food with the hungry
    and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter—
when you see the naked, to clothe them,
    and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?

“If you do away with the yoke of oppression,
    with the pointing finger and malicious talk,
 and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry
    and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,

then your light will rise in the darkness,
    and your night will become like the noonday.”woman raising arms arms to the sky in a glow of light

 

 

 

 

 

“Usually we think of fasting as avoiding food for the purpose to prayer. The emptiness of our stomachs reminds us to pray. Isaiah 58 speaks of a fasting God may honor most of all.

What is God proposing that we fast from?

What do we have to give up or fast from to reach out to the oppressed?

Whatever our answer, we know if we pour out our lives to satisfy the needs of the oppressed, God will be faithful to satisfy our needs.”
